TECHNICAL PAPER: Optimize Profits When Designing Eagle Ford Condensate Splitters
Eagle Ford Condensate is becoming more and more plentiful, and is overwhelming the overheads of Crude Units that blend it in with their heavier crude charge. Several separate grass-roots “Condensate Splitter Units” are currently being designed and/or installed to process this as a 100% feedstock. MPEC, Inc. (MPEC) has reservations about their “optimization”, considering today’s high product differential values. These “common” splitter designs are often based on minimum investment costs. MPEC has now done its own grass-roots process design to increase profit by maximizing high-value distillate yields and minimizing low-value yields.
